Our Community

Creating a place of belonging for grandparents and our grandchildren.

Together we are a big extended family at GCWA. Our ‘home’ is the GCWA headquarters in Warwick Western Australia. In just over two years we’ve built an op shop, garden and play spaces for our grandchildren.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section][vc_row gap=”none” equal_height=”yes”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_row_inner colored_section_style=”pink-box” equal_height=”yes” gap=”default”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

More than bricks and mortar

Our hub has hosted Christmas dinners, coffee mornings and monthly BBQs where everyone is welcome and we can just be ourselves.

Our Warwick venue is also a drop off point for food and donations and the venue for our many evolving support events and services. We provide legal advice clinics, social worker services, recreation opportunities like yoga, meditation and fitness and importantly, just a place to be understood and have a cuppa and a chat.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ background_position=”center center” css=”.vc_custom_1643093605575{background-image: url( !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section colored_section_style=”navy-box”][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”845″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_row_inner gap=”default”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

A network of support

We are connected in many ways.

Our facebook page is a great source of information and you can see lots of pictures there from our many community events. Our email and text services are also ways we let you know when there might be a donation on offer or space in one of our recreation classes or legal clinics.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Click here to see our Facebook page” style=”style2″ a11y_text=”Click button” link=”″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_row_inner gap=”default”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

Special opportunities

Camps are a special opportunity for grandparent carers to get away and enjoy time together with the kids.

Funded places in recreational camps are an opportunity for grandchildren to make friends with other grandparent led families in our community. Many grandparent carers are on tight or existence holiday spending budgets, so these camps are a highlight of the year.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”879″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section]
